East Carolina Council
2013 Philmont Contingent
Scouts, Scouters & Parents:
The dates for the 2013 Council contingent have been established! If you have been waiting for your opportunity to hike the trails and bag the peaks at one of the most scenic places in the country, now is your opportunity! Our contingent will attend Philmont Scout Ranch beginning June 22, 2013 until July 4, 2013. These dates do not include travel time to and from Cimarron, New Mexico. The contingent will include 24 members forming two crews.
A Boy Scout or Venture Crew member must be 14 years old by January 1, 2013 OR have completed the eighth grade prior to departing for Philmont. He/she must be an active member of a Boy Scout Troop or Venture Crew. Youth female participation is dependent on the availability of a female adult advisor. All participants will be required to participate in a hiking/camping training program during 2012-13.
The selection of youth crew members will be on a first-come-first-served basis, and slots are filling quickly! The first 24 youth & adult applications received at the Council Service Center (accompanied by the reservation fee) will be placed on the “participant list.” Remaining applicants will be placed on an “alternate list.” The Council camping/high adventure committee will select all adult participants and assign crew leadership.
The 2013 Philmont Contingent cost is estimated to be $1,900.00. Registration deposit of $100.00 is due with application.
